Seimens have unveiled the new Desiro trains that will be introduced on the Great Northern Hertford Loop later in the year.
The German-built trains are expected to enter service from September on Great Northern's commuter services from Welwyn Garden City, Hertford and Stevenage to London’s Moorgate station, according to The Railway Gazette.
The trains feature air-conditioning, real-time information systems, power points and wi-fi.
‘We have designed and built the trains with one goal in mind - to transform passenger journeys to and from London by ensuring that services are reliable and offer as much space as possible’, said Richard Carrington, Director of Rolling Stock Projects at Siemens.
